Avocado Toast
Avocado Toast

I eat a variety of different foods for breakfast - hot cereal such as oatmeal, high fiber, low sugar cold cereal, fruit and yogurt, eggs with homemade hash browns and sliced tomatoes on the side and pancakes made with fresh fruit like blueberries or strawberries. 

Kevin and I like to make avocado toast occasionally on the weekend for something different. He makes the hard-boiled eggs in the Ninja on the pressure cooker setting and I do the rest.

A bag of 5 avocados were on sale when I went for my weekly grocery shopping on Thursday. The ripeness of the avocados was perfect for making avocado toast.

We like to cook once and eat twice. We made 6 hard boiled eggs so we could make this recipe on Saturday and Sunday.

Western cultures tend to consume excessive amounts of saturated fat, trans fat, and omega 6 fats and not enough omega 3 fats and monounsaturated fat.

Avocados are a good source of monounsaturated fat. Monounsaturated fat is a heart-healthy fat that helps to lower LDL (bad) blood cholesterol.

Western diets are also low in dietary fiber.

The recommended dietary intake for fiber is:

  • 25 grams for women
  • 38 grams for men

Adults who eat a typical Western diet are only getting about half the recommended amount of dietary fiber.

A medium avocado has a whopping 10 grams of fiber.

Avocados also contain:



✔️Vitamins A, C, K

✔️B vitamins
